My self-summary
I'm Adam. The first man? Possibly, sometimes I do feel pretty old.

I'm weird, I won't lie. I like being weird. It makes life a lot more interesting. I find the world both incredibly beautiful and interesting but also frustrating. I'm not cool, bar a short period of time in 2004, I've never been cool, that's fine I've never wanted to be cool.

Recently being a "geek" has become somewhat cool. I've been derided, ostracized and hated for being what is now classed as a geek for my entire life. So you'll forgive me if I find it somewhat infuriating seeing the type of people who perpetrated said derision wondering around with Geek on their t-shirt and wearing glass frame versions of the glasses I need to see.

Having watched the Big Bang Theory (which by the way, is far from the geekiest programme on television and is in fact a pretty standard sitcom which happens to have script advisers who shoehorn references to popular science and culture within the confines of the narrow format of a conventional sitcom script, every mention of Oppenheimer or Aristotle in the show would just be replaced by a fart joke or a sex joke in say "Two and a Half Men" from the same writing team. If you want to watch a "geeky" sitcom, watch Community, a programme that actually subverts broad comedy stereotypes and openly mocks conventions) doesn't in fact make you a geek. Just like my happening to wear black glasses doesn't mean I look like Leonard (a common misconception of unimaginative people recently), I'm nearly a foot taller and a lot broader for a start.

People's desperation to categorize themselves never ceases to amaze me.

RANT OVER *drops mic*

I studied Film and Journalism, Philosophy and Politics during 6 years of uni. I can understand quantum physics and recite whole poems off the top of my head and also know ridiculously random factoids. Like did you know there are massive rain clouds in space?

I'm an odd mix of idealistic and cynical (I wholeheartedly believe that if your not cynical your not paying close enough attention).
What I’m doing with my life
Growing a beard, what that's not a long term goal?

I work in fundraising management for an environmental charity. It's very rewarding and not that poorly paid. I love feeling like I've made a difference and would never want to work in a corporate environment again.

In the long term I'd like to be a writer (novels, tv, films, graphic novels I'm not fussy as long as it's creative) but will probably always have another job to pay the bills. I know for certain that I'll never be someone who cares about being rich. I just want to have a family and do something that makes me happy. Some people mistakenly think this means I'm not ambitious but that's probably because they've watched too many BMW adverts.

I also write music, sing and play guitar and have been in bands of varying quality and style since my early teens. I still write although I no longer have a band. I am toying with the idea of doing some acoustic gigs for my own entertainment rather than because I have delusions of being Jeff Buckley (although that would be nice, you know apart from the dead dad and drowning bits).
I’m really good at
Listening, remembering things, hugs, what the french call "espirit escalier" or the "spirit of the stairway" which means thinking of the right thing to say five minutes too late, finding the least appropriate joke to make in a given situation, sarcasm, suggesting bands you've never heard of to listen to, books you've never head of to read and films you've never heard of to watch.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably how tall I am, then I would imagine it'd be my curly hair. Now that I'm wearing glasses again the most common comment seems to be "You look like Superman" which is of course wrong, if anything I would look like Clark Kent, not that I think I do but lets be accurate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Philosophy/Politics/Economics particularly Chomsky, John Gray, David Hume, Naomi Klein and Schopenhauer sci-fi Love in the Time of Cholera The Watchmen Chuck Palahniuk Phillip K Dick classics poetry particularly EE Cummings, Charles Bukowski and John Keats Nick Hornby Kazuo Ishiguro Koushun Takami i also read a lot of graphic novels or comic books to most people. I love Alan Moore particularly V for Vendetta, as well as Scott Pilgrim.

Films, i studied Film so obviously there are loads more but honorable mentions: One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest Breathless/ a Bout de Souffle Rashamon and all other Akira Kurosawa films Battle Royale all Christopher Nolan Films Donnie Darko Garden State Lost in Translation Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist The Omen Evil Dead Grosse Point Blank High Fidelity Ferris Bueller's Day Off Bill and Ted Shaun of the Dead Get Carter Brotherhood (korean) Enter the Dragon Pulp fiction and Quentin Tarantino in general all David Fincher Films Pineapple Express The Sure Thing Before Sunrise/Sunset Manhattan 500 Days of Summer Festen Scott Pilgrim Vs The World Kiss Me Deadly The Seventh Seal Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind Taken Upstream Colour Primer Gasland The Corporation Park Chan Wook's films The Raid

TV Shows: How I Met Your Mother Friends Scrubs Wonders of the Universe Family Guy Arrested Development IT Cowd The Walking Dead Spaced Chuck the Thick of it The Big Bang Theory House Black Books Spaced Sherlock Freaks and Geeks Community

Music, I like a bit of everything but tend more towards the "alternative" and rock/singer songwriter end of things, I think music should aspire to make you feel something somewhere other than just in your crotch (I'm looking at you Miley Cyrus): Propaghandi Glassjaw At the Drive-In Black Flag Led Zeppelin The Clash Al Green Marvin Gaye Ray Lamontange Gavin DeGraw Pearl Jam Ben Harper Jeff Buckley Brand New Leonard Cohen The Descendents Colin Hay The Black Keys We Are Scientists Jimi Hendrix Bon Iver The Get Up Kids Rival Schools The black Crowes The Kinks Sonic Youth The Pixies Fugazi Hot Water Music Neutral Milk Hotel Sonic Youth Say Anything Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros MxPx Daniel Johnson Face to Face Deaf Havana Million Dead (way better than Frank Turner on his own) Hell is for Heroes The Future of the Left

I love food and cooking mostly italian, thai, chinese and indian. I also enjoy anything sweet and ideally brightly coloured and have recently discovered that Dime Bar Milkshakes might be the greatest invention in human history.
The six things I could never do without
A guitar, music, films, books, love and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, as I mentioned I studied philosophy so I'm pretty much always thinking about something, mostly deep intellectual things but sometimes it's just about ewoks ( I mean do they have ewok schools and hospitals up in those trees?). I have a constant inner monologue (it's a bit like an episode of Scrubs only less zany and far more damaging to my self esteem)
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends or at home playing music or writing or watching films.
